Meet the Author

Spin the Plate is Anastasi's debut novel. The 2013 printing of Spin the Plate is a completely revised and expanded novel-length version of her 2010 indie-award winning work: Cross-Genre Fiction, Women’s Literature, Contemporary Romance.

ABOUT SPIN THE PLATE: Jo is a survivor of a bleak and abusive childhood who roams the city streets at night as a powerful vigilante. Francis is a mysterious man she meets on the subway train. In this story, the average-guy hero battles to win the battered heart of the wary, edgy, less-than-perfect heroine. "A fast-paced, edgy, darkly comic tale of resilience, romance, and redemption that breaks over you in waves." - Holly Robinson, author

Anastasi also authored two non-fiction small animal books published by Bowtie press: The Complete Guide to Gerbil Care (2005) a popular how-to book on breeding, raising, and caring for gerbils and The Complete Guide to Chinchilla Care (2008) a chinchilla handbook promoting these exotic and intelligent creatures as companions, not coats.

Donna Anastasi lives in the woods of Southern New, Hampshire with her husband, two teen-aged daughters and an ever-changing menagerie.
